Third Age of Mankind

A concept referring to maturity when applied to the Younger Races. Mankind, in this instance applying to non-humans as well as humans, entered its 'Third Age' when the remaining First Ones (Vorlons and Shadows) recognized that the Younger Races were capable of making their own decisions and managing their affairs without interference. Without further manipulation, Humanity and its contemporaries were free to achieve their collective destiny.
